Why should I use an SSD instead of HDD?
We strongly recommended SSD over HDD because performance gain from SSD is beneficial in every aspect of the database performance. SSDs are the primary choice for our SingleStore Database because of their speed. These faster speeds lead to performance benefits such as fast loading of columnstore tables from disk and fast rebuilding of rowstore tables from disk into memory in the event of a crash. Also, SSD enables us to perform faster backup and restore operations because of the faster file storing and retrieval operations than HDD.
